24 Signs That Our Once Proud Cities Are Turning into Poverty-Stricken Hellholes

Tyler Durden, Zerohedge, April 24, 2013

{snip} Once upon a time, the United States was a place where free enterprise thrived and the greatest cities that the world had ever seen sprouted up from coast to coast. Good jobs were plentiful and a manufacturing boom helped fuel the rise of the largest and most vibrant middle class in the history of the planet. Cities such as Detroit, Chicago, Milwaukee, Cleveland, Philadelphia and Baltimore were all teeming with economic activity and the rest of the globe looked on our economic miracle with a mixture of wonder and envy. But now look at us. {snip}

Did you know that the city of Detroit once actually had the highest per-capita income in the United States? {snip} Sadly, the exact same thing that is happening to Detroit is happening to cities all over America. Detroit is just ahead of the curve.


The following are 24 signs that our once proud cities are turning into poverty-stricken hellholes…

#1 According to the New York Times, there are now approximately 70,000 abandoned buildings in Detroit.

#2 At this point, approximately one-third of Detroit’s 140 square miles is either vacant or derelict.

#3 Back during the housing bubble, an acre of land in downtown Phoenix, Arizona sold for about $90 a square foot.  Today, an acre in downtown Phoenix sells for about $9 a square foot.

#4 The city of Chicago is so strapped for cash that it is planning to close 54 public schools.  It is being estimated that Chicago schools will run a budget deficit of about a billion dollars in 2013.

#5 The city of Baltimore is already facing unfunded liabilities of more than 3.2 billion dollars, but the city government continues to pile up more debt as if it was going out of style.

#6 Today, the murder rate in East St. Louis is 17 times higher than the national average.

#7 According to USA Today, the “share of jobs located in or near a downtown declined in 91 of the nation’s 100 largest metropolitan areas” between 2000 and 2010.

#8 Between December 2000 and December 2010, 48 percent of the manufacturing jobs in the state of Michigan were lost.

#9 There are more than 85,000 streetlights in Detroit, but thieves have stripped so much copper wiring out of the lights that more than half of them are not working.

#10 The unemployment rate in El Centro, California is 24.2 percent, and the unemployment rate in Yuma, Arizona is an astounding 25.6 percent.

#11 It has been estimated that there are more than 1,000 homeless people living in the massive network of flood tunnels under the city of Las Vegas.

#12 Violent crime in the city of Oakland increased by 23 percent during 2012.

#13 If you can believe it, more than 11,000 homes, cars and businesses were burglarized in Oakland during 2012.  That breaks down to approximately 33 burglaries a day.

#14 As I have written about previously, there are only about 200 police officers assigned to Chicago’s Gang Enforcement Unit to handle the estimated 100,000 gang members living in the city.

#15 The number of murders in Chicago last year was roughly equivalent to the number of murders in the entire country of Japan during 2012.

#16 The murder rate in Flint, Michigan is higher than the murder rate in Baghdad.

#17 If New Orleans was considered to be a separate nation, it would have the 2nd highest murder rate on the entire planet.

#18 According to the Justice Department’s National Drug Intelligence Center,  Mexican drug cartels were actively operating in 50 different U.S. cities in 2006. By 2010, that number had skyrocketed to 1,286.

#19 Back in 2007, the number of New York City residents on food stamps was about 1 million. It is now being projected that the number of New York City residents on food stamps will pass the 2 million mark this summer.

#20 The number of homeless people sleeping in the homeless shelters of New York City has increased by a whopping 19 percent over the past year.

#21 As I noted yesterday, approximately one out of every three children in the United States currently lives in a home without a father.

#22 In Miami, 45 percent of the children are living in poverty.

#23 In Cleveland, more than 50 percent of the children are living in poverty.

#24 According to a recently released report, 60 percent of all children in the city of Detroit are living in poverty.

    Of these 24 factors, all but #8 are directly racial, and race can even partially explain #8.

    • Manaphy

      The reason that manufacturing jobs are lost is also because of race. You see, most company owners like to hire low skilled blacks and illegal aliens (mostly of Hispanic origin) to do manufacturing jobs because of two reasons which i can think off the top of my head right now:
      1. For diversity and affirmative action (A.K.A. anti-white racism).
      2. Because white workers are more likely to form and join Workers’ Unions.
      Anyway, since non-whites,mostly blacks (considering that this is Michigan), are hired, the quality of the product goes down (this is because blacks simply aren’t as good, motivated or dedicated workers as whites). As quality goes down so does revenue, and the company is forced to go bankrupt, all because they refused to hire white workers. Therefore #8 is explained by race as well.

      • Bill

        Except all the crap cars ever made, with “lemon” faults and which fall apart way too early in the life cycle have been MADE in predominantly black areas. Ohio, Detroit, etc. Wasn’t always that way in those car manufacturing centers, but once the black flood headed into those areas and began working in the car factories, you found bottles in wheel wells, transmissions failed early on a regular basis, parts fell off or rattled, etc. Blacks just don’t care about much of anything like quality, doing a good job, or respect for the white man who pays their wages (or welfare). They are grateful for NOTHING. They are like an alien race who can only destroy and move on like locusts.

        • The Final Solution

          You can’t expect much more from a race that never thought of the wheel in 50,000 years of history.

        • NM156

          The Japanese didn’t build plants in Black industrial regions of the US for a reason. Most were in white Midwestern and Southern states.

      • A. Windaus

        There is also the off-shoring part to it. Chinese labourers work for next to nothing, and they don’t complain about this because they’re happy just to have a job. In the West we have a sense of entitlement that tells us that doing manual labour is beneath us, even if we can’t get a job anywhere else.

        • Nathanwartooth

          “In the West we have a sense of entitlement that tells us that doing manual labour is beneath us, even if we can’t get a job anywhere else.”

          Stop watching MSNBC or the BBC, it will be good for your health.

          I have two friends who work in manufacturing and have met several more on the internet that are struggling.

          If manufacturing was still a way to jump into the middle class at 18, there would be millions lining up for it.

          “Jobs Americans wont do” is code for “Businesses want to pay 3rd world wages”.

          • ncpride

            Exactly. Before NAFTA, the small county I grew up in was packed full of manufacturing companies. Furniture, textiles, shoes…etc.. Generations of families worked in these places without complaint, and made a decent living from it. My own mother sewed in the textile plants, and my father was a forkcliff driver. There’re ALL gone now, pretty much destroying that little town. Jobs Americans won’t do, my foot.

          • NM156

            NAFTA didn’t obliterate American industry and manufacturing as China did however, and this unbalanced and unhinged trade policy didn’t just discard employees on the factory floor waiting to be made redundant by advancing technology. Companies that produced computer-controlled automation and robotics in the US have moved production to Asia as well, taking engineering, design, maintenance, and a long list of other high-skilled jobs with them. A price will be paid for all of this.

          • George White

            The price IS being paid right now…out of control entitlements….insane deficits….printing money….it won’t end well.

          • NM156

            And they do line up for jobs at Caterpillar in Peoria, IL, generally after two years of tech training of some kind. Cat also has joint programs with the local and regional school districts. As the saying goes, it’s nice work if you can get it.

          • George White

            Love that concise and accurate analysis, the last line a classic to remember.

            Exactly how Africans wound up in America in the First place. Exactly why Latin Americans are being imported into North America now. Some greedy a-holes never learn.

        • Morris LeChat

          no black person has ever been happy to just have a job, it is not in their DNA

      • guest

        Manufacturing jobs certainly are lost because of race. It is no longer legal to give aptitude tests to potential employees. See Griggs v. Duke Power Co. After that case was decided, manufacturers ended up forced to hire low-IQ workers (blacks) who couldn’t do the jobs effectively, and couldn’t be fired because they would sue for that. After Griggs, there was no way a manufacturing business could succeed here. The businesses that are flourishing here are technology companies that are allowed to do IQ screening of employees. What do you think all the famous Microsoft and Google interview questions are? They are IQ test questions, which are fine if you’re a software company, but which are not legal in manufacturing or most other areas.

        Griggs v. Duke Power Co was the end of America as a great manufacturing country. One silly little court case!

        • NM156

          Oh lookie-the case was decided in 1971, just before US industry abandoned big, Northern, and heavily-Black industrial centers. Coincidence? I think not…

          • Pookie

            >–/..–> Where are they when needed?

          • dogbone

            I bet the judge in the case went to the same schools as Martin Luther King: The Frankfurt School.

        • bigone4u

          If I could tap out more than one up arrow for you I would. What you say is cause and effect that you don’t learn in a college economics class.

        • MikeofAges

          “Griggs” effectively banned the consideration of aptitude whatsoever in favor of legally tangible hiring criteria — for example and saliently, job specific degrees for ordinary non-technical entry level jobs. Another element of fallout from “Griggs” has been the exacerbation of the preference for graduates of so-called “selective” colleges. The underlying reason is that these institutions can administer the aptitude tests the employers are forbidden to adminster.

      • NM156

        The 1970s exodus of heavy industry and manufacturing from Northern cities to their suburbs and to the Sun Belt was in great part to get away from Black workers.

      • Morris LeChat

        the decline of the US auto industry tracks very closely to the percentage of blacks in the workforce of that industry. In the seventies, when blacks became very numerous in auto plants, they were notorious for getting high and drunk on their lunch breaks, and taking way too many of those breaks. The new car lots were filled with pieces of total junk. The consumers flocked to the Japanese made cars. The American cars before this period, all the way up to the mid fifties, were consistently amongst the best in the world.

        • Alexandra

          We want to buy American, not African!

          • Morris LeChat

            Clever, and totally accurate

      • Alexandra

        I wonder…if it weren’t for affirmative action…and employers could actually hire qualified people…if there would be fewer recalls.
        Having these people around costs all around. Auto insurance is higher in the major cities…and how much you want to bet it’s because the majority of blacks and Mexicans have no business behind the wheel? Blacks with their lack of foresight are a hazard…they’ll suddenly realize they need to be in THAT lane…and Mexicans don’t see a problem with driving while drunk.

        • saxonsun

          Here in NYC and its boroughs, the illegal Mexicans are out in force. One tries to stay away from them.

    • Morris LeChat

      we are living in the second “reconstruction” period. This period is similar to the period of “reconstruction” after the civil war where blacks were put in positions of power in southern governments. The tales of corruption, violence, and generally disgusting behavior during that period are legendary. We are witnessing the justification for the system of racial separation and the exclusion of blacks from all positions of power and authority that came about after the period of reconstruction. Time dimmed people’s memories, so we again made the same mistake of thinking that blacks were just like whites, that the difference was only in appearance. Nothing could be further from the truth. The differences are profound. Blacks can not build nor sustain anything close to acivilization. Their communities are almost completely devoid of businesses. The only organizations that do exists in their communities are ones funded by white taxpayers. They then try to barge their way into white enclaves to gain access to things they destroyed or never built. How come it is always blacks that want to crash the white establishments? It is NEVER whites wanting to crash the black establishments….there just aren’t any black establishments. They are parasites that follow the white man around.http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&v=UhP7j1iynXk&NR=1:dats2

  • This is good ammunition for the Republican Party.
    Are they going to use it?
    Well, I guess I won’t be voting for them at midterms.

    • Liberalsuck

      They’ll continue to worry about getting the black vote and continue to lose the black vote and continue to lose the white vote since we’re getting tired of their cowardice and betrayal…and they’ll grant amnesty to millions of people who are assured to always vote against them. Next question.

      • America First

        I agree. Been a Republican committeeman for 35 years on and off. Frankly, I’m now disgusted with the party. With the exceptions of very few members in the Senate, and a couple dozen in the House, most of them are Hispanderers and/or traitors, similar to the Demos.

    • Eagle_Eyed

      Yes, we know.

  • sbuffalonative

    I was just riding down a couple mayor thoroughfares on Buffalo’s black east side and I was thinking, as I always do when I pass through this side of town, just how many vacant and dilapidated houses and businesses there are; along with vacant lots.
    The place just needs to be bulldozed and returned to nature. There is no other solution.
    However, I’m sure an economist can tell us how amnesty will solve all these problems.

    • The__Bobster

      I hope you were nowhere near the Fruit Belt. That area was dangerous even when I lived there decades ago.

    • Sue

      in 2012 I unfortunately had to go attend an event in Jersey City, NJ. I noted all the beautiful charmingly built houses boarded up or burnt out. Absolutely depressing.

    • Integration Anxiety

      Yeah, I hear you sbf. I am a fellow Lake Erie (former urban dweller) suburban city dweller, just West of you in Cleveland. Ironically, it’s Cleveland’s East side and Southeast side that is black and morally bankrupt. But the West side is not far behind, as many of the Irish elderly die off, and their kids and grand kids move to the suburbs and exurbs, like myself and my wife and daughter. There are actual strip malls in my suburb that have maybe one or two occupied spaces, but have ten or twelve EMPTY spaces. And this is in a suburb that’s 90-95% White. There are no innovating business leaders who have the capital to start up “mom & pop” type businesses anymore. That ship sailed 15 years ago, maybe more.

      I don’t know about Buffalo’s lakefront but in Cleveland, the development is a joke, and nearly nonexistent. Many people have bumper stickers on their cars stating Stuck in Ohio. I am grateful that I am in manufacturing, though. And my wife is also employed. We are happy to support our little girl, but we see others struggle all around. From what I can see the cities of the South and West, like where bobble headed Brian Williams and other lamebrainers in the media tells Americans where to move. Go ahead. I hope people do leave the Rust Belt. Less competition for jobs and resources. Besides we got liquid gold up here. The Great Lakes.

      • MBlanc46

        Liquid gold, indeed. And when those southerners and westerners come for our water, they’d better be prepared to duck hot lead.

        • MikeofAges

          The issue falls under the rubric of “area of origin”. Far Northern California is sparsely populated and the “area of origin” of the much of the entire state’s water, for which they are paid nothing. Meanwhile, although as everywhere there are many well off people, the counties go bankrupt and poverty and dependency are rife.

          • MBlanc46

            Oil isn’t treated like that and those of us who have water are going to have to defend it sooner or later.

    • Alexandra

      Last fall I visited my mother in the Detroit suburbs. She took me and my son to downtown Detroit for her Daughters of Union Vets meeting so she could introduce us (I am not going to join DUV for the record). Going down Woodward Avenue was depressing. Empty lots where buildings once stood, dilapidated buildings, looked like a war zone. It’s sickening to see what has become of beautiful old houses, houses that no doubt housed nice families decades ago.

    • saxonsun

      I remember riding through Albany, NY at ten and being shocked by the condition of the black areas. It never changes.

  • The__Bobster

    That which YT once built, blackie is rapidly destroying. They are the foot soldiers of our enemy.

    • So CAL Snowman

      Blacks are biological warfare used against Whites.

        The antidote is ‘uncivilized’ – but quite effective.

          Quite effective indeed. Once administered, it has a 100% success rate.

  • Sue

    No# 25. No white people

    • GM (Australia)

      How very true. (And stating the obvious)

      We all make our observations, make comments and express our frustrations about race related issues on this website but there are very few suggestions as to what to do about these things. This includes the stupidity of everything from AA, PC, Forced Multiculturalism, unenforced border protection right through to central governments wasting billions of taxpayer dollars on useless programs to try and make us all the same.

      Any workable suggestions out there?

      • Andy

        I think we should try to spread the truth, as politely as possible. Meanness and hostility are not going to change any minds. Dishonesty and a lack of commitment to living right ourselves will turn people away from the cause because of disgust and mistrust rather than reason. Widespread belief in obviously false things cannot last forever. And while this site is home to a lot of venting, it’s also one place that’s getting the word out. When I started questioning anti-racism in high school, I turned to the internet, and American Renaissance gave a lot of information without nasty lies or exaggerations and without doing too much to confirm the assertion that anyone that doubts egalitarianism is filled with “hate”. I think it would also be good to emphasize the positives (for me, at least, people became a lot more fascinating once I learned how different we are) and hope for the future, rather than talking about how awful blacks are. Yes, they have lots of testosterone and low IQs. We need to view these as facts, not slurs, and find ways to work with them. My dog is as dumb as a box of rocks and barks at anything that moves. Trash-talking her would be senseless. It’s what dogs do. I still love her, even though she’s not just like me. But I don’t let her do whatever she wants.

        • Brent Delph

          I’m sorry, but this had me rolling on the floor. The dog comparison is both accurate and hilarious.

      • Talltrees

        I’d like to see a White civil rights organization started with legal representation, of course. Each one of us can respond to those making anti-White remarks and to our legislators; however, impact is greater when large numbers respond in mass. Telling legislators we will not vote surely should cause a stir among the Republicans.

        I think our greatest challenges are locating a director and money for this organization. Other than for newcomers, we don’t need more discussion among those convinced. We need action.

        Fear of losing their jobs, not thinking anything would be done about it, it’s too late, and unawareness of the seriousness, are a few of the reasons we are not seeing more join. A few have said they don’t want to join a group that demeans other races and ethnicities. Also, a few conservatives say God does not discriminate and that everyone is equal in his eyes, so why shouldn’t non-Whites come here. They need educated on equality (IQ and capabilities) as to why that is harmful to the U.S. Following that lesson, they see our point.

        We need pro-Whites to speak up regardless of a backlash. The petition on Whitehouse.gov is the only avenue we have right now to be heard, but few are signing despite the efforts of Tim Brown at Freedom Outpost out of fear they will be targeted.

        Not that I think he could reach the 100,000 signatures in 30 days needed to reach the threshold. (Was recently changed by gov powers that be from 25,000 to 100,000.) And, not that I think we would make much progress even if the 100,000 threshold was met. With a significant number, though, it’s possible, some of the conservative legislators might begin to say, “The troops are getting restless.” Regardless, of how small an effort might be, it could lead to something that clicks in the future.

        If anyone wants to sign:


        • Talltrees

          Until we form something organized, each one of us can professionally respond to anything we hear anti-White. For example, the White Privilege Conference, Dr. Sragow at USC, President of USC, comments made on TV, schools, colleges, actions taken by NAACP, ACLU, ADL, SPLC, CAIR, etc.
          We can frequently email and call our federal legislators. It’s a slow process chipping at the boulder, but with increasing numbers, we might begin to see some action.
          Join NumbersUSA.com and sign up for ‘Action Buffet.’ Also, Florida Family Association uses assistance nationwide to stop the progression of Islam. Right now they are halting corporate advertising on al-Jazeera USA. Both indirectly effect us. FAIR is an anti-immigration site.
          Since none of the above apply to you, looking around in Australia might lead you to similar actions that you can take.

          • George White

            Great advice. Every time I read of some hateful anti-white, I try to follow up with a letter to the anti-white. In the case of teachers and public employees, I write to their superiors and ask that they be removed. We have to fight back. If we get aggressive (like the Muslims) the anti-whites will think twice before crapping on us.

        • MikeofAges

          You need a unified agenda. And keep in mind, nothing for everyone will never fly as an agenda. You have to state affirmatives that you want. Not take aways from someone else, and nothing for you. What you want.

          • Talltrees

            I agree with you.

        • GM (Australia)

          I hope a whites civil rights organisation is eventually established, hopefully something with a bit more clout than the mildly effeminately named “Tea Party” It would be great to see such an organisation have the same influence with your legislators as for instance New York feminists, Gay Rights or the NAACP do.

          A few of my other suggestions would be;
          Repatriation incentives, (And deport the rest)
          Intern or deport Muslims until such time as the Islamic War of Terror on the West stops,.
          Proper Border Fences to your south. Allow guest workers for the fruit harvest.
          Optional segregated/separate communities and educational and career paths.
          Make certain welfare is not an option for unwed mothers or those who do not want to work.
          Introduce a work for the dole scheme like we have here.
          Preference for immigrants who can speak English and do something useful for your country

          • Talltrees

            Only with increasing numbers and donations will we make headway. Wealthy Jews have been instrumental in the success of the feminists, gays, and Blacks. They are even attempting to align with a Muslim group. Difficult to comprehend.

            As for your other suggestions, absolutely. Although, some of us fight for these changes, not enough have been vocal to make an impact. Legislators are only concerned about votes. If many of us do not vote, they might get the message. They haven’t yet since they are pandering to Hispanics. Conservative legislators fail to address issues of their mostly White European base.

            We not only need a civil rights organization, but also a pro-White anti-immigration, as well; although, NumbersUSA is doing well, it doesn’t target non-White immigrants specifically.

            Initially, both could be started on a small scale with donations from readers at AmRen and other pro-White websites. As they catch on, more donations should come in.

            Since White issues are prohibited in the media, we have no way of getting the word out other than the internet. The Political Cesspool (should change their name) (http://www.thepoliticalcesspool.org/), James Edwards, a growing radio program, focuses on preserving White European heritage. Source of funding comes from American listeners, some from Europe. Saturday night from 6:00 to 9:00 pm central time USA.

            Our own TV station would be ideal; however, I doubt companies would advertise.

            It’s pathetic no organizations are fighting for us. We desperately need lobbyists. Hispanic La Raza receives over 90 million in donations every year. We certainly do have wealthy conservatives, but they have been silent. They might be willing if they saw organized leadership.

            Many of us are not in the position or possess the expertise to start organizations such as these, but it’s difficult to believe there is no one willing to do it.

            Currently, we are left with, as individuals, our own devices mentioned in the previous post. Another indirect way of making an impact is not to purchase products from companies that use foreign illegal and legal non-White cheap labor and skilled labor if at all possible. Tyson’s Foods uses many Somalians in their slaughtering facilities. Others requesting many foreign workers, Walmart, McDonald’s, Microsoft, CVS, Intel, IBM, Oracle, Google, Goldman-Sachs, JP Morgan Chase, Whole Foods, construction and agricultural companies, to name a few. Don’t use non-White foreign owned businesses, such as gas stations and restaurants. Insist on being treated by White physicians in the ER and hospitals. For over the phone tech help, ask for an American. In your case, Australian. Dell uses Canadians and Americans, if you pay for it. Microsoft uses Indians. Buy as much as possible from local farmers. Complain to the company when given the choice of Spanish or English when calling. Australia may have a different language problem.

            Contact the Census Bureau and insist that non-Hispanic Whites be changed to European Whites, excluding Jews and others calling themselves White. Certainly not applicable to Australia.

            If a mosque is planned in your area, contact Gavin Boby at [email protected]. See his website: http://lawandfreedomfoundation.org/2013/02/17/blame-canada/k-and-gavin-boby/. He is willing to help all White countries with European ancestry.

          • GM (Australia)

            I must admit it all does seem a bit overwhelming at times. Fortunately English is the only official language spoken in this country and all signs in shops etc must also be displayed in English. We have had some success in stopping mosques and Islamic centers usually on technical grounds such as traffic and parking. But generally speaking PC, United nations obligations and pragmatism seem to rule the political agenda here as it does in your country.

    Yet,the U.S. as a whole has one of the lowest homicide rates in all of the Americas.Our homicide rate is down to late 50s numbers now ans the violent crime rate is down to early 70s numbers.

      Seems to be a trend across the Western world, the crime rate is dropping ever lower. I don’t know whether this just highlights black crime even more than it would have in the past, though I even think their crime rate is dropping.

      One way is plea bargains. Plea down from murder, and walla, less murders. As one example. Also, lumping hispanics and other non-whites in to the white statistics. And in many black cities, crimes of all kinds go unreported.

        You are correct about that! I have lived south of Seattle my whole life and I could never understand the issue of blacks and gangs in the “inner city” only. That was a problem for Oakland, CA and eastern US cities only. I now realize, and local liberal political professors have agreed, that Seattle is odd in that it’s more expensive and mostly white and asian in the city, esp north Seattle, but gets darker and more gang infested (including asian gangs) as you go south. The south part of the city of Seatle has a non white problem, but the worst of it is in the southern suburbs right where I live. 25 years ago we were 70-80% white, now we are down to about 48%. And the myth of Seatle being white, safe, and a better quality of life compared to LA or San Fransico or other US cities is totally dead.

    • Andy

      In one of my classes today, a professor was talking degradingly about suburbs and how they were inhabited by “whitey”. (This man was white, too.) I think this country would benefit from a program moving lots of poor blacks out of cities into big foreclosed homes and wealthy college town neighborhoods. I’m sure it wouldn’t last long, and it would probably be a good educational experience.

        • brengunn

          Look at the black countries with none of this stuff, if anything they’re even worse, more lawless and more violent. I agree with you about racial business quotas and college admissions but I don’t see how any of the others contribute to the situation in a negative way.

          • Luca

            Blacks when left to their own devices will turn a neighborhood, city or country into a replica of Africa. The Liberal policies mentioned, has allowed and enabled them to have their way and do exactly what they do in those other countries.

            Before 1965, before we had these Liberal, enabling policies we did not nearly have the situation we do now.

        • MBlanc46

          Those are all federal, not local policies. And it wasn’t government policy that sent blacks pouring into northern cities in the 1940s-1960s. It was the mechanization of cotton culture.

          • Luca

            First of all I never said a thing about local vs. federal policies. The Federal Policies that started building the “diversity coffin” were instituted by Liberals like LBJ and T. Kennedy.

            The first black migration took place 1910 to 1930, then after the Depression it picked up again from 1940 to 1970. In the early part of the 20th century newly arrived immigrants were willing to work at negro wages and could do a better job with less of the associated social problems. So blacks took off. And where did they go? Usually to big cities (urban areas) where they could get Government jobs or take part in the booming war-time factories.

            It is undeniable that the programs I mentioned have done the lion’s share of the damage to our society. Blacks were always a societal problem but by enabling them to run amok, well, we have what we have now.

          • MBlanc46

            “Each of these cities have Liberal policies which encouraged minorities to run amok.” Perhaps that wasn’t quite what you meant to say. It appears to imply that it’s the cities’ policies that are to blame. What’s known as the Great Migration started during the War and lasted into the sixties. The possibility of work (not welfare) in the North was certainly a pull, but the mechanization of cotton culture was the push. Before the War authorities in the South would confiscate copies of the Chicago Defender because the Defender was urging blacks to leave the South and come North. The planters weren’t going to have that. The welfare programs of the sixties and seventies were a response to the Migration, not a cause of it.

          • Luca

            I apologize for the vagueness of my statement, I can see where it could easily be interpreted beyond my intent. While the legislation is federal, it is applied in different manners by each of these cities who then go far out on a limb and kowtow to the minorities beyond all reason. They lavish them with all sorts of goodies and spin-off programs including contracting set asides and management positions. Once blacks are in positions of authority, the waste, fraud, abuse,corruption and cronyism is breathtaking. The downward spiral begins and it is usually too late by the time people can see beyond the veil of political correctness.

            i worked in city government for 30 years and watched how the laws were progressively twisted and abused for the sake of the almighty diversity.

            Thank you for clarifying.

          • MBlanc46

            I certainly don’t disagree with any of that.Recovering our cities, saving what can be saved, and rebuilding the rest is one of my principal motivations. It breaks my heart to drive through Chicago neighborhoods that were built and maintained by generations of our ancestors and then reduced to rubble that resembles pictures of Germany in 1945 since the black migration.

      • Andy

        Liberal policies can do fine with a white population. If welfare is available, most whites will still work. If a popular government has a lot of control, it will be a group of generally well-meaning and intelligent people. Democracy and socialism cannot work with a black population. They will elect corrupt, ineffective leaders and a great number of them will cease to work. Things like affirmative action, meanwhile, prevent a majority black city from getting anything done because it prevents it from taking advantage of its white talent. Conservative policies would not solve most of our problems (we’d need to go a lot further), but if I were trying to destroy a black area, I’d use liberal policies.

      • Puggg

        It almost doesn’t matter what wing or what party runs a black city, it will be a mess regardless.

        • Luca

          Liberals maliciously engineer and enable minorities to run amok. Minorities and Liberals have the same common enemy in mind: White, heterosexual Christian males and especially the non-Liberal variety..

          • a multiracial individual

            Liberal Leadership + Whites = Seattle, Portland, Scandinavia

            Liberal Leadership + Whites + Blacks + Hispanics = Ghetto hell holes, suburban flight, race riots, urban decay, etc.

            Please explain what is so intrinsically toxic about liberal leadership? The best answer is that they M-I-G-H-T advocate for lax immigration. While Sweden appears to be drinking the immigration cool-aid I don’t believe that Iceland and Denmark have.

          • Luca

            Fair question. I speak from a perspective of having worked with liberals for 30 years in City government.

            As concise as possible: Liberal policies sound wonderful but almost never work upon application and in most cases make matters worse. Here’s one I witnessed that is race neutral: Wind or solar power. Not practical as currently being applied and will never replace fossil fuel. But as with all Liberal policies, they disregard the facts and keep pouring money into it.(Can you say Solyndra?)

            Liberal + Whites = something good, you’re right. BUT those policies attract minorities and does nothing to stop them from taking advantage and overwhelming the system. The only thing stopping them now is the weather. Minorities can relax in LA and collect benefits so why freeze your butt off for half the year. Those in Detroit and Chicago are already rooted there because their grandparents went there to work so they prefer not to move. You also don’t find them in NH, Vermont or Maine for the same reasons.

            But look at what Minnesota and Scandinavia has done. They weren’t happy being white and Liberal, they had to import their misery. It happens every time.

            Honey is good; but if you don’t cover it up and put it away when you’re done you’ll soon be overwhelmed by the flies it attracts.

A state of the art community hospital, schools for kindergarten all the way to doctorate level major colleges in less than 15 years. Yacht and Polo clubs as well as designer department outlet stores. This is Florida as you can imagine. Expectedly the master planned community is 99% white and there is a gaining momentum to incorporate into it’s own city. It’s funny because twenty years ago the city nearby was exactly the same way until all the vibrancy of diversity turned it into well exactly like #1-25 listed above.

      Until my house burned down I lived in a gated community of houses worth a couple hundred thousand and up. The security guard at the gate kept the curiousity seekers out. An Hispanic familty did move in, but the HO Assoc was always on their case due to rule restrictions. HO associations can make whatever rules they want, but can’t racially discriminate. They can fine violators and put liens on houses to try to force violators out who do not pay the fines. It’s a clever response to diversity.

        Well, maybe we’ll find one… especially if we cut unnecessary expenditures. 🙂 But seriously, the same planet would be fine if we didn’t subsidize the exponential growth of the African population and provide them weapons to kill themselves and us. The fact is that in any black and white society, the white population is going to be caring for the majority of the black population. If we’re going to take on that responsibility, we have to have policies that prevent tremendous birth rates and crime. It would be irresponsible for us to feed 40 million stray cats but let them run loose and have litters of feral kittens. It would make the place miserable for everyone, and the cats would live hellish lives. We need to either let Africans care for themselves in their natural way or set up decent government for them rather than paying for corrupt ones to fail horribly at best and to kill, maim, and starve their subjects at worst.

        • Andy

          If whites are going to foot the bill for the whole of Africa, they should at least have control of the fruits of their labor. With decent laws, everyone could benefit from such a project. Altruism is great, but on a large scale the givers have to support themselves too.

    The percentage of the country that is black has not grown significantly since the the halcyon days of American cities. What has changed is deindustrialization.

    From the labor movement of the 1930 to perhaps the recession of 1974 it was possible to men with double digit IQs to get factory jobs with strong unions that guaranteed lower middle class wages, and good benefits. Since then changes in the law, especially the North American Free Trade Agreement, have made it possible for American corporations to do their manufacturing in countries with low wages and little environmental protection, and have the manufactured products shipped into the United States without paying tariffs.

    Computer technology has made it easier for American executives to manage manufacturing in low wage countries.

    The decline in the manufacturing sector has hit blacks particularly hard because of their lower average IQs. It has also hit white blue collar workers. In his book ”

    Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010,”

    • purestocles

      While it may be true that “The percentage of the country that is black has not grown significantly since the the halcyon days of American cities.”, the percentage of blacks relative to European Whites has, nevertheless, increased. That’s because Hispanics now make up 17% of the population. In 1960 they were just a few percent.

      So, if Hispanics were 3% of the population in 1960, then the difference is 14%. Subtracting that from 100% and we get 86%. Blacks are currently 13% of 100% which is 15% of 86%, whites are 70% of 100% which is 81% of 86% so Blacks relative to whites today is 15/81=18.5%. So, as you can see John, Blacks make up a much larger percentage of the population today RELATIVE TO WHITES than they did during the “halcyon days of American cities”–which is just as one would suspect when looking at the reproductive rates broken down by race over the last 45 years.

      • rick

        According to an old World Book Encyclopedia I have from 1970, there were 22 million blacks living in the US at the time. Today there are 40 million. So their percentage maybe be up only a point or two from decades ago but their numbers have grown substantially.. and those extra 18 million blacks have to live somewhere…

      • purestocles

        I mean 15%/96%=15.6%. Still greater than the 13 apparent % today.

        • purestocles

          Actually, Engelman, in the interests of honesty and historical accuracy, let’s look at what the 1961 census tells us. At that time, there were 158.8 million whites living in the U.S., 18.9 million blacks. 18.9/177.7 = 10.6% black to white ratio which accounted for nearly all the population then. Today there are 13% black, but as I pointed out above, this understates the true relative percentages of black to white because of the massive influx of 3rd world hispanics. Black to White has jumped from 10.6% to 15.6% in fifty years.

    • MBlanc46

      I believe that the percentage of blacks has declined as Hispanics and Asians have poured into the country. You’re quite right, it’s the export of any job that can be exported that has led to our current predicament.

    • David Ashton

      Two combined factors, not just one.
      Outsourcing to cheap labor overseas (including your old friend, the Orient) leading to collapse of old industries.
      Arrival of unemployed and unemployable people, especially blacks with no ability for self-improvement.

      • JohnEngelman

        I have already posted elsewhere that the people who own and run the Untied States have been importing cheap labor and exporting good jobs for over a generation. Both political parties have been complicit. America’s rich have benefited at the expense of the rest of the population.

        There is fortunately not a large influx of blacks into the United States. The influx is of Hispanics. In terms of crime, illegitimacy, and average IQ Hispanics are about halfway between whites and blacks.

        Being the victim of several violent black criminals has hardened my attitude toward the entire race and made me willing to acknowledge facts about them I had earlier in my life made excuses for, or tried not to think about.

        I have never had any problems (yet!) with Hispanics. In the predominately black and extremely dangerous city I live in the influx of Hispanics has been a good thing. They start stores and restaurants, and stand up to the black criminals.

        Although I like Orientals and immigrants from India, the h1b visas have destroyed my computer career.

        I feel ambivalent about many things. I like ambivalence. It prevents fanaticism. It makes it easier for me to tell the difference between what is true and what is false, even when an an accurate understanding is not good for my self image.

    In the United States the rate of violent crime has declined since 1991. The decline has continued since the Great Recession.


    • bigone4u

      When there’s nothing left to steal, theft will go to zero, proving that the crime stats have to be digested with a bit of common sense. With more blacks in prison and more whites with guns, violent crime would go down, as would a demographic shift caused by black abortions. There is no proof that the propensity of blacks to commit crime has decreased.

    • Bad_Mr_Frosty

      Like South Africa, if you stop reporting/recording the crimes, the crime rate “drops”

    • George

      The violent crime rate has dropped for two main reasons.

      First, the incarceration rate has tripled since 1980. More criminals in prison = fewer criminals on the streets, committing crimes.

      Second, the demographic shift has pushed a larger share of the population beyond the prime-crime years of 15-25.

      For these two reasons, the violent crime rate has dropped. As Mr. Frosty points out, if crimes are not recorded, the rate drops further still. There have been links to articles on AmRen in the past few months about NYC cops downgrading offenses to help improve the crime stats.

    • Luca

      That trend will reverse very shortly. Initially crime went down due to stiffer sentencing laws.

      Here in the Liberal outdoor insane asylum (California), the judges have decided it is inhuman to have so many inmates in crowded conditions. They are forcing the State-run prisons to remedy the problem while the prisons are simultaneously taking budget cuts. The answer? Push them down into the county jails. The county jails are in the same dilemma so they just let the thugs out early. Nine-month sentences reduced to two weeks, a virtual vacation for repeat offenders.

      We have already witnessed an uptick here but that is just the tip of the iceberg.

      The more the ACLU crusades for criminal rights, the more we will see this kind of insanity spreading across what’s left of this country.

      • JohnEngelman

        There are two reasons for the decline in the rate of crime since 1980, and the rate of violent crime since 1991. The first is that the prison population has tripled since 1980. The second is the Roe v. Wade decision of 1973. That greatly increased the number of abortions. The kind of female who is most likely to have an abortion is the kind who is most likely to give birth to a boy baby who is likely to become a violent street criminal. She is unmarried, poorly educated, unemployed, and stupid. A potential mugger who was aborted in 1974 would have been eighteen in 1992.

        The ACLU is comparable to the Westboro Baptist Church. It thrives because of a sympathetic judicial system that can be made unsympathetic through democratic (that’s small “d” democratic) political action.

        The way to reduce the high cost of incarceration is through the thorough exploitation of prison labor enforced by the whip, and by eliminating educational and recreational facilities.

    Regarding the closure of Chicago schools: It’s not so much a matter of the city being strapped for cash (although it is), but that enrollment has dropped and many schools are underutilized. The point is to consolidate schools. One of the principal objections is that many of the little ghetto rugrats will now have to attend school in the territory of a rival gang.

    • Concerned Citizen

      That means the hoodrats will fill more jail cells and morgues. Darn…

    • Strider73

      The other objection is the loss of useless jobs, nearly all of them filled by Bantus. Every school that closes means one unemployed principal, at least one unemployed vice-principal, and heaven only knows how many unemployed teachers, janitors, clerks and others.

      The disastrous integration project in Kansas City has been mentioned here many times. One reason it failed was the refusal of the school board to close unneded schools due to all the Bantus who would be out of work. The two largest employers of blacks in KC were the post office and school system. The whole sordid tale can be read here.

      • MBlanc46

        Which is why the teachers’ union is up in arms. It’s not a good thing to put people out of work when we have 7.5% (official) unemployment, but someone’s got to pay for Richard II’s profligacy (and it’s not going to be the connected).

    I understand the data on poverty, decline and race well enough. However, it’s beginning to be a white story. Washington State is mostly white and is number 5 nationwide for foreclosures. There are 157 FHA foreclosures going forward right now in my zip code alone. Most of these households are white and most of Washington State is white. Asians (mostly) seem to be taking their places, but many properties have been being bought by “investors.” Rents are high, etc. This is not a good formula for white survival and a poor indicator of the growing reality for more and more whites.


      A White person going through a foreclosure is NOT the same as fatherless kids, filth, not learning, etc. There is NO correlation.

      Foreclosures are a financial situation. Whites will have more since as the economy tanks, it is the WHITES who have jobs to lose and home to lose. When you live off of EBT cards, Section 8 housing and government health clinics (Blacks), you don’t have a foreclosure.

      Nice try attempting to make Whites look bad.

        The negative effect on increasing numbers of whites being driven into conditions once viewed as only happening to non-whites (outside of the Reconstruction South) was my point. I wasn’t trying to correlate life style, IQ, educational level, or any other social/cultural condition beyond noting the general negrification of American society in general. AA, EOE and so on have created large numbers of non-whites and women with the most secure jobs with pensions, etc., (as long as those government jobs last).

        I sense a pridful response which doesn’t help anyone make the necessary distinctions or recognize a growing problems for whites. Just in case you haven’t noticed, there are a large number of essentially fatherless white kids as an increasing condition since the 70s. Speaking as you do here of “whites” as a fixed group with a mythological reputation that has never changed is rather stagnant and safe from attack or corruption is not just untrue, but dangerous to whites. That is, unless we are set to boot whites out of the “white” group once they fall below say, middle class status.

          I love any White child. I have even advocated for single White women to have as many White children as possible. We need them.

          Fatherless White children are a sad thought, but I will do more than my fair share to support WHITE children. First, we must have a WHITE ONLY nation, then we can argue among ourselves.

    Every single problem mentioned in the list above is directly related to BLACK PEOPLE.

    We need to send them ALL back to Africa as Lincoln wanted. They must go.

    Ahh the joys of diversity.
    And the sickest part is the number of stupid whites who defend these beasts.

    #1 and #2 So what? The natives will steal anything of value and burn the rest which will eventually be farmed or forested.

    #3 Not my problem. Turn it into a Mexican reservation

    #4 Poor unemployed (and ignorant) teachers. They’ll go on the dole, but will be cheaper.

    #5 Go ravens!

    #6 Eventually there will be 2 knee grows and one will murder the other in a jenkum deal.

    #7, 8 and 9 Blame the slothful work attitude of the black majority.

    #10 thru 16. I’m celebrating diversity right now. Do not disturb!

    #17 Hurricane Katrina was ethnic cleansing; Mofo Nature am a rayciss.

    #18 A classic example of wets doing the work YT won’t do. Round them up, put them on trial for chemical warfare, and shoot them.

    #19 -24 I used to feel sorry for the poor because I thought them unlucky, then I found out how stupid they are. As they say in Russia, “tough shitski.”,

    When I read this story I almost sent it in to Amren and then I thought to check the website first and it had already posted here.

    I think a lot of people are waking up to this reality that the #1 reason is absent is always absent from stories like this, which is race.

    We are given endless treatises that this was done by “liberalism” or “the Democrats” or “poverty” but never the real reason.

    Chicago has had armed guards in their public schools for several years now, but Rahm Emanuel says he doesn’t want American schools to be militarized. There is no end to the libs’s bullshit and hypocrisy.

  • Sorry, race & manufacturing jobs don’t necessarily explain what is happening in big cities. That’s merely my opinion, take it or leave it. As far as Detroit dying….that has been going on for some time now. Look at all the Muslims up there who have taken over parts of the city. People simply do not want to be near people who behave like they do. I think if I had to hear their wailings & prayers several times a day, I would leave too.
